PRINTS IN CLAY

In remembrance of the enslaved individuals who once lived in Charleston, the Slave Dwelling Project, Historic Charleston Foundation, and Gaillard Center team up for a day-long “artistic and educational exploration.” The event begins with ”Beyond the Big House,” a walking tour through the Mazyck-Wraggborough and Ansonborough neighborhoods that forgoes the usual historic homes in favor of the back buildings inhabited by African Americans before Emancipation. The evening then features ”Food of the African Diaspora,” a three-course meal curated by Dr. Jessica Harris highlighting African culinary tradition. Following the dinner, attendees can take in the uplifting sound of J’Nai Bridges and Lowcountry Voices in Wycliffe Gordon’s ”Still, We Rise!” celebration of traditional spiritual music. Locations, times, & prices vary.
